As his president might have said, it depends on what your definition of "invented" is. From the link you included:

During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.

Okay, maybe this isn't technically saying you "invented" the Internet, but it does sound like he's implying that without him, the Internet wouldn't have come into being.

Tomato, tomahto.
